Californian editor publishes book
Vidhima Shetty sheds light on the little-known disease of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
"Recently, I had the opportunity to publish my first book, “An Adolescent’s Guide to ME/CFS.”
What started as a newspaper article in The Californian two years ago led to a product that will hopefully educate one more person or patient about myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome."
"The story of my book all began when I decided to write my first article in The Californian as a sophomore, about two years ago. I had learned that my neighbor, Tom Camenzind, who was a former student at Cal High, had to drop out of Stanford University because of a disease that he had. The topic was relevant, and it was a subject that I wasn’t familiar with, so I decided to look more into this disease and write an article about my neighbor.
Once I had interviewed his family, other patients, and the founders of ME/CFS foundations as sources for my article, a new sight began unravelling in front of me. This community of patients and their families were struggling with this disease – a complex, debilitating disease that has no biomarker, pinpointed cause, FDA approved treatment, or cure."

Good article. It sounds like she's done here research well and is very supportive of pwME. Proceeds of sale of the book are going to OMF.
